Trust Your Eyes by Linwood Barclay was my first foray into the world of high powered politicians behaving badly, home visits from the FBI and cliffhangers at end of every chapter.
I'm not sure what to say.
I read most of this book at the gym, on the stationary bike, and it did make time go by quickly. Every time Barclay ended a section by saying something like... Just then, the hot, blonde assassin heard the door to the apartment opening. She turned around to find something, but I can't tell you what until later because, duh, sorry, this is a suspense thriller, I did feel a little bit like, "Oh man. What a tease. I'll keep pedaling until I find out."
One time, in my twenties, I was home sick from work and watched all 13 episodes of a Law and Order SVU marathon. That show sucks, you know, and you'd never turn it on in a million years, but remember how you had that short stint of secretly watching it? Or, maybe, remember how we all loved the X-Files for a few minutes?
Well, this book was sort of like that. It's stupid, but the pages were totally turnable. If you're the kind of person who still catches Law and Order on TBS, or whatever, and watches it occasionally, this book might be for you.
